Work with brainstrust

A unique charity with an inspirational story and an exciting future.

We’re here to help people live life with a brain tumour. We do this by helping people become less alone, less afraid and more in control.

It’s no small task creating a ‘brain tumour support’ sector from scratch, but we’re well on our way.

Step inside brainstrust and you’ll find talented people working together to improve the lives of everyone living with a brain tumour.

Support Specialist & Volunteer Manager

Home based, flexible working – covering our Central South England region
£22,000 – £26,000 (dependent on skills and experience)


There are over 70,000 people living with a brain tumour in the UK. 16,000 more people are diagnosed each year. 20-40% of all cancers spread to the brain. Brain tumours are the biggest cancer killer of the under 35s. The disease is responsible for over 20 years of life lost in the typical patient, making it the most lethal cancer. What causes brain tumours is unknown and incidence is increasing.

Interesting. But we know that these statistics don’t help you on the day you are told ‘you have a brain tumour’.
